Study in Australia: Student housing costs28 October 2016 by News Desk
Study in Australia where student accommodation costs between $150 and $250 per week.
Students enrolled at universities in Brisbane, Australia could be able to receive housing help and support from organisations including Purpose Built Student Accommodation operators The Pad, Student One and Iglu.
Student beds in Brisbane have increased from 6,000 to 7,500 this year. The growth is due to international student enrolments and strong demand based on the low Australian dollar.
The new streamlined international enrolment process and simplified Visa processing systems has also helped to boost student numbers.
Most new student developments in Brisbane are focused on the Central Business District.
There is also a strong demand for student housing in St Lucia (University of Queensland), Kelvin Grove (QUT) and Mt Gravatt (Griffith University).

A new report from Hive reveals demand for medium priced rooms, ranging between $150 to $250 per week, remains high with low vacancy rates and limited new supply coming to the market.
According to the report, further student demand is expected in 2017 however, Hive believes rental rates will hold steady due to competition as newly constructed PBSA complexes pursue full occupancy.
